#WFJ: WHAT IF JESUS WALKED INTO THE ROOM?

#WFJ: What If Jesus Walked Into the Room?

Think about this long and hard.  It could very well change the way you live your everyday life.  What if Jesus walked into the room where you are?

What difference would it make to you personally if your favorite all-time hero, an international dignitary or world leader, a famous celebrity, or your prized superstar athlete, walked into your presence?  You can be sure you would be extremely excited and very impressed to respond in some fashion.  The atmosphere would be super charged by their presence and you would be hyper-sensitive to them.

How much more so would this be true if the Creator of the Universe and King of Kings presented Himself to you face to face.  This would truly create an immediate, dynamic, and direct bearing on your behavior in the presence of Jesus.  Would His real physical presence cause you to carefully weigh, examine, and clean up all your thoughts, words, and deeds?

The truth of the matter is that if you are a born again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, then you take Him wherever you go because Jesus permanently dwells within you and is forever present.  You may not see Him physically, nevertheless, He is always with you in the unseen spiritual dimension.  He is an eternally present witness to every single thought, word, and deed that comes from your life.  The reality of that truth is sobering.

This blazing thought: What if Jesus walked into the room, was seared into my consciousness as I was preparing a tribute for an upcoming memorial service.  My friend had slipped the bonds of his temporary earthly life to transfer his occupancy to his permanent and eternal residence, where he would fully possess his true citizenship in heaven with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  What a glorious homecoming I truly believe he experienced.

While daydreaming on my bed, I pictured myself at the memorial service of my dear and genuine friend who was an honorable, godly man.  I paid tribute to him by reading a significant poem entitled, “The Dash,” by Linda Ellis.  The author poignantly articulates the essence of that little line between the date of one’s birth and death.  That dash represents one’s brief sojourn here on earth, in light of eternity, and how it is spent and invested, positively or negatively.

All of a sudden, in the middle of my thoughts, this supernatural vision appeared.  In utter amazement, I looked up as I was speaking and saw Jesus sitting right there in the sanctuary.  He was keenly observing with great joy the eulogies given in honor of His dear and faithful friend and servant.  My heart just about leaped out of my chest as I stood in His presence!  Oh how His very presence changes everything.

I remembered what Jesus said in Mathew 18:20, For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” He also said in Hebrews 13:5, “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.”

Jesus’ tangible presence set my mind ablaze with many questions.  Do you continually keep in the forefront of your conscious thinking the truth that Jesus is always supernaturally present to witness your entire life as it unfolds?  Do you let His Holy Spirit inform, direct and empower, your behavior moment by moment as you walk in covenant relationship with Him?  Is the way you present yourself, represent Jesus, and treat others, as well as yourself, pleasing in His sight?  Have you truly put Jesus, the Word of God, first place in all things?  Have you allowed Him to be in the driver’s seat of your life?  In these things your life will glorify Jehovah God.

You must always remember that all things are possible with Jesus.  Your part is to believe only, trust and obey, and do all things God’s way.  This is His way of supernatural abundant life.

I believe Jesus appeared to me in this vision so I would be inspired to encourage all those who have an ear to hear and a heart to believe what the Spirit of God is saying to them now.

A Word From Jesus

I am coming back soon!  Live not only as if I am present in your midst, but because I Am the Resurrection and the life, and I Am eternally present with you.  Live from the inside out, that is to say, live with a God-inside consciousness.  Live by My Holy Spirit inside of you, leading and showing the way that you should go.  I Am the way, the truth, and the life.  I am making My way for you because I loved you enough to send My only begotten Son to die for your sins, so you could be forever and eternally reconciled back to Me, the absolute and preeminent lover of your soul.

Live with eternity always in sight because I Am your eternal hope of glory.  I have called you by name, and I have predestined and ordained, before the foundation of the world, for you to be with Me in glory forever.  The choice is yours.  I love you with an everlasting love and as you walk through your earthly life, know that you can always call unto Me and I will answer you, for I am with you even until the end of the age.  Breathe every breath, think every thought, speak every word, and perform every deed, as if done unto Me,  for I Am with you always.  Let My very presence be the very standard by which you live.  Let My Word and My Spirit rule in your heart and mind, and I promise it will go well with you all the days of your life.

I faithfully remain your soon coming King, Lord, and Savior.

Love in Jesus,

My Prayer

Father God, Search me and create in me a clean heart that I might not sin against You.  I repent from every thought, word, and deed I have committed, either consciously or subconsciously, that was not pleasing in Your sight.  Please forgive me and help me begin afresh each day by the power of Your Holy Spirit, so I can be all that You have called me to be, in Jesus name.  Amen.

    Hi Nancy,

    Thanks for sharing this thought provoking with a powerful title. I was thrilled to see you post to your blog again, especially after posting your Godly Words poem to one of my blogs yesterday.

    Blessings,
    Joseph

    P.S. I miss talking to you and praying with you.

    Dear Nancy,
    I am so glad that you are resuming your gift of writing with His pen in your hand. We can always use the reminder of how much He loves each of us. But, along with that unconditional love, we need to accept the responsibility and blessing of living with a God-inside consciousness. That is my heart’s desire. I fall short. With His forgiveness each new day can begin afresh and I can continue the journey of His calling. Thank you for obeying His call on your life, Nancy.
    Love,
    In Christ,
    Judi:)
